We had another Bourdain sighting in town yesterday. Despite the 24 Hour Layover's production team trying to hide filming locations, the Twitterverse exploded with Bourdain's whereabouts.
Seems as though Bourdain was on a boat yesterday, cruising over to Stiltsville for a little unique sightseeing (and maybe some fishing and a beer) before heading over to Tropical Park for a nosh at food truck Sakaya Kitchen a Gogo.
According to Richard Hales, owner of Dim Ssam a Gogo, 24 Hour Layover was supposed to shoot his truck at 109th and Biscayne at a staged mini-food truck roundup. When that location was leaked, the production team called Hales at the last minute and changed locations to Tropical Park, where Hales's other truck, Sakaya Kitchen a Gogo was serving dinner.

Bourdain filmed the segment with Michael's Genuine Food & Drink chef/owner Michael Schwartz. If Bourdain eats like the rest of Miami, we're sure he had the pork buns, tots, and Brussels sprouts. We'll have to wait until November to see if we're right.
Where's Bourdain today? We're on the hunt. If you know, please tell us so we can continue
obsessively stalking following him.
